other congress men feel the same. >> this year the wall street journal only cited six of us in the house of representatives. and i think that number now is larger today. and i am hopeful that many of my democratic colleagues will put aside ideology and look at the economics of this. to me this is a matter of timing and economic management. it is not a matter of ideology. take karl rove on, and he certainly believes that tax cuts are always good. i don't believe that. but i believe right now to increase taxes on anybody, especially an income bracket that is responsible for such a large percentage of our consumption in america, would be unwise and directly damaging to a fragile recovery. >> so flatout you are saying extend all of the bush tax cuts. >> now now. >> what kind of timeframe? >> we need to remain flexible and see what happens to the economy. if the economy is growing at 5.6 percent as of december 30, it is now growing at the rate of 1.6 percent so we have to see, we have to give it time to recover from the steepest recession in 80 years. >> what you are saying is a revelation am
